    About Madison


    Cultured, cosmopolitan and quaint - that’s Madison, which is also home to two universities. It attracts professionals commuting to New York and to some of the big name companies located nearby, including Novartis, Kraft, Schering-Plough and Wyeth. Its popular moniker, Rose City, derives from bygone days when Madison was famous for the beautiful roses raised at nurseries in and around the town. Every year, Madison has an event called Bottle Hill Day. During this time, the community is able to come down to the center of town to celebrate the community with games, food, music, and a variety of activities for as many as 20,000 participants.

    Madison School Information

    The Madison Public Schools system is rightly praised for the great all-round education it offers. The district is committed to delivering a curriculum that challenges the brightest students while supporting those with different learning needs and styles.

    For elementary pupils there are three neighborhood schools:  Kings RoadCentral Avenue, and Torey J. Sabatini.  Pupils come together at Madison Junior School for grades 7-8, and high school students attend Madison High School.

    Madison High School was recently praised by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools for providing “a rich, broad and diverse educational program” for its students. It offers four world languages (Spanish, French, German, & Italian) and 16 Advanced Placement courses, including calculus, computer science, and environmental health. In addition to the rich academic environment, the school is proud of the many character and service opportunities for students. There are dozens of clubs and 23 interscholastic sports. Madison High School features 45 athletic teams in 18 sports and they have clinched an array of conference, county and state titles.  Every year its music students are chosen for regional and state select performing groups.  Madison High School recently completed a construction project providing additional facilities and space for both curricular and extra-curricular programs.

    Additional construction work at Madison Junior School made room for transitioning the sixth grade out of the elementary schools and into the Junior School.

    Madison is home to two universities: at Drew University there are around 2,500 students based at the College of Liberal Arts, the Drew Theological School and the Caspersen School of Graduate Studies in the 186-acre wooded campus. The classically collegiate Madison-Florham Park Campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University is nationally and internationally renowned for its research, academic leadership and innovative curricula. It is home to more than 2,400 undergraduates and over 1,100 students.

    An amazing advantage of living in a place so steeped in academia is the opportunity extended to local people by the universities. Sample the Drew University Minicourses at Madison public library or hear a world-class public lectures from speakers such as Bill Clinton, Gerald Ford, Henry Kissinger, Al Gore, Rudy Gullianni, Doris Kearns Goodwin and Colin Powell.

    Fairleigh Dickinson’s Community program includes the Institute for Lifelong Learning, which aims to enrich the lives of senior citizens through cultural, educational and social activities. For a small fee, members may join undergraduate or graduate courses – and there are day trips, art classes, line dancing and aerobics, as well as a repertory company which entertains in area nursing homes and hospitals.

    The popular Adult School of Chatham, Madison, and Florham Park offers a fabulous selection of classes in everything from arts and crafts, through to challenging courses in business and legal issues.
